Israeli President Shimon Peres presented former US President Bill Clinton with a medal,

with the US stars and stripes visible in the background on the stage.

It has become a thing to count the number of Israeli flags at this annual event.

The flag painted on wall at the Jerusalem International Conference Center was still flying.

But as President Shimon Peres delivered the closing address of Facing Tomorrow,

there were NO Israeli flags on stage.

For two days I looked and all I could find was this JNF display

with one little itty-bitty Israeli flag stuck in a pot plant.   Next to it were

many other little flags which covered what used to the JNF little “blue boxes.”

So once again the question is:

why at an Israeli Presidential Conference are there no Israeli flags?

If anyone found an Israeli flag I missed, other than on a lapel pin, please let me know.

Natan Sharansky we know was not wearing an Israeli flag.
